“Maybe it’s time to pay your fighters their fair share,” Jake Paul brought up an interesting point and called Dana White for underpaying UFC fighters
Jake Paul on Dana White
Jake Paul has been a part of lot of conversations recently, and now he has taken his shot at the UFC president Dana White. He commented on the pay issue in the UFC and sided with Jon Jones on this one.
Dana said that he would bet $1 million on Jake Paul losing against Ben Askren, but Jake knocked him out the in very first round of their boxing match, now Paul has posted a Tweet which goes like.
“Dana, you claimed you would be $1 million on me losing, set up Askren to train with Freddie Roach. Gave him full access to the UFCPI and he still got his ass handed to him.”
He added, “In my third fight, I made more money in total pay than any fighter in UFC history. Maybe it’s time to pay your fighters their fair share? No wonder they all want to get into boxing. Dana, you say you make the fights the fans want to see, so hurry up and make Jones vs. Ngannou. Pay them their fair share. $10 million purse for each guy plus pay-per-view.”
Paul’s last fight against Ben generated $75 million in revenue so he had all the right to call Dana out on this one.
Jon Jones mocked UFC by congratulating Jake Paul in a deleted Tweet
Jon Jones is fighting to get the money he thinks he deserves for this fight against Francis Ngannou. Dana White recently revealed that Jones wants $30 million for this fight, and that is not possible.
Jones has denied any such claim, and now congratulated Paul on his victory, he deleted the Tweet rather quickly, but it said, “Jake Paul congratulations on your victory, that knockout over Ben was absolutely beautiful. If you’re seriously making over 5 million for a fight already, that’s wild. I’m so happy for you. Wishing you all the best on your combat sports journey.”
